is a youth association established on 16 June 2009, located in Skopje, since than we have tried to organize different activities in the field of Education and Culture. We have also trained a lot of people in different topics such as communication, leadership, economy, sociology etc. Our main target is High school students and also we are working with minority youth age 18-25.
The aim of our organization is to implement, protect and take care about the general common interest through organizing the citizens, especially the youth, in improving the civil and local societies as well as for conducting activities in the field of education and culture in order to develop the intellectual standards and to contribute in providing a peace environment. Our mission is to motivate the citizens, regardless of their ethnic background, gender or race, to be activated jointly as an organized society in order to build a civil society in the Republic of Macedonia and beyond; to undertake more active role in creating better future and better conditions for acting through participation in the decision taking processes; to enable direct approach towards the education and care towards the cultural values of all the citizens in our country.
We have 5 employed people who work on our projects, 15 volunteers who help us with different local and international projects and also we count more than 30 members In our association.
Our organization is very active in trainings, which aim to train the high school students how to understand and solve conflicts during the whole school year. At the end, these trainings result with two final activities: the performance of two dramas based on different types of conflicts written and performed by the high school students, and the competitive final debate, where student’s debate regarding particular topics related to peace, conflicts or other actual problems in their life. Furthermore, different experts in the field of conflicts and other related fields hold lectures in front of the students in order to introduce them to the theoretical background of the conflicts. Furthermore, each year we tend to celebrate the Peace Day, Earth Day, Book Day etc. Due to the International Peace Day a humanitarian event was organized. Through different kinds of art such as pictures and poems were shown different forms of peace. The accumulated money were donated to the children with special needs.
